    Any ideas on how to remove a live round from the barrel? I was able to get the slide locked back but the round did not eject and is stuck in the barrel.

    Is the primer dimpled?

    You can have a light strike where the primer has a dimple but hasn't fired. Has the primer been struck by the firing pin?

    For a Stuck Live Round

    You will need a large flat head screwdriver and some tape. I would lock the slide back so that it is out of the way. Them take some blue painters tape and wrap it around the screw driver except for the very tip. The tape will help you of the screwdriver slips so it wont scratch the slides finish. Take the tip of the screwdriver and find the rim of the case. If you using a twisting motion you can use the barrel hood as leverage and pull the case from the barrel. Once you remove it throw it out and do not attempt to use it. If your stuck round was dirty you may want to run a cleaning brush down your barrel incase there is gunk in it.

    Another dumb idea... Remove the barrel from the slide, put it in a vise between 2 blocks of wood, and use pliers to pull the case out by the rim.

    But you didn't hear it from me...

    I prefer a wooden dowel slightly smaller than the diameter of the barrel. Less chance of marring the barrel, and you aren't messing with the primer end of the cartridge so much less chance of it going off...

    Another vote for removing the barrel from the slide. Put it in a padded vise and try to tap it out from the muzzle with a rod or dowel.
